The candy coloured Jackie Dress or why I love the 60s!

Dresses/ Featured/ Icons/ Romantique

Max Mara pink wool dress

We all know those days; the ones where you wake, sift through your overflowing wardrobe, and there is nothing to wear. Nothing seems to align with your mood, fit with your new coat, complement your work shoes. The day has barely begun, you’re late for work and already pangs of stress are beginning! That’s the moment where I like to cut through the complexity and grab a simple dress. A dress so that I don’t have to worry about matching top to bottom. No pattern, just a  mono coloured fresh hue complementing my skin, cut in a comfortable timeless shape. This is where classic brands like Max Mara are your best friends. No matter what the fashion fad du jour says, you can always rely on a simply cut dress in their collection. Jackie Kennedy knew that looking flawless is about the classic looks. Mind you she did live in the 50s / 60s , having the best fashion of the decade at her fingertips! Good news for us is that 60s fashion looks incredibly modern today. Look at Twiggy and Grace Coddington below. These two would rock any street style competition in 2016!

I’m wearing bordeaux coloured Oxford lace-ups to prevent this dress from looking too sugary sweet. Hand embroidered metal bracelet by Camille Enrico.  I’m in love with these hand embroidered metal bracelets by the  French designer. A piece of jewellry close to my heart as it was a present from the team I worked with previously in London.

Fashion Sisters: One look two styles: Sweater Weather

Jumpers/ Rebel/ Romantique

Fashion sisters sweater weather

Before the first arctic chill of winter, there are the magically sun-lit golden autumn days, known as sweater weather season.  It’s the time when we cocoon ourselves in toasty cashmere, fluffy angora and plush knits. Think outdoorsy flushed cheeks, romantic walks in the park, with a hot chocolate or gluehwein in hand.

Rebel does Urban Chic:

Rebel is wearing a sumptuous beige merino jumper, paired with distressed denim and star printed Converse Chucks. A wooly hat keeps the brisk fall mornings in check.

Rebel is wearing:

  • Sweater bei Max Studio
  • Jeans by TK Maxx
  • Blue handbag by Badgley Mischka
  • Light blue star chucks by Converse
  • Hat by Collection
  • Lipstick: Lady Danger by MAC

Metallic sweater SET. Topshop black skinny jeans.

Romantique goes metallic:

Give your autumn sweater a twist by wearing metallic knits. To avoid looking like a christmas tree bauble, I dressed down with  simple black skinny jeans and pointy flats.

Romantique is wearing:

  • Metallic jumper with pink contrast piping by SET
  • Black skinny jeans by Topshop
  • Nougat coloured leather jacket by Stefanel
  • Black pointy flats by BCBG
  • Cherub bag by Fiorucci
  • Pink mirrored aviators by Ray Ban
  • Lipstick: Ananbella audacious by NARS
